Girarde

Pinot noir

La Côte Appellation d’origine contrôlée

Girarde is the name of a special terroir in the form of an amphitheatre that is planted in terraces because of its very steep slope (40 to 50%). The soil consists of a layer of clayey limestone over a well-structured silty moraine base. Nights here are cool and days warm – the ideal micro-climate. After giving us a rosé in its early years (planted in 1988), then as part of Colombe Noire, we were drawn to the idea of setting aside this vine plot which is showing increasing character. A three-sided adventure – the people, the place and a pure juice of minerality.

VINTAGE

Harvest on 10th September

The budding date predicted a normal year, with harvest in October, as usual in our region. But the time until the flowering has rarely been so short: only 49 days against 62.5 days on average thanks to hot and sunny weather!

So we started picking on September 10, with grapes of absolutely irreproachable quality and temperatures still frying 30 degrees. It was one of the nicest and longest summers ever recorded.

The fermentations went well. The last sugars turned into alcohol. Crucial stage, revealing the subtleties of the grape. Out of respect for work in the vineyard, we vinify in the same state of mind. In particular, by the use of native yeasts or the absence of sulfur, which makes us live adventures sometimes surprising … The tasting is daily. We monitor the wines with curiosity and interest, which allows us to gently guide each tank through temperature controls or transvases.

We are looking forward to seeing you again at our cellar to taste this 2018 vintage, which offers wines with body and very nice concentrations of aromas.
